US Jewish Federations Considering Dropping ‘Zionism’ from Global Plans. Really?

I was indeed surprised and dismayed to read this article:

Actually, surprised was an understatement...  I had to do a double-take, and then check around a bit to make sure this article was indeed genuine.

In fairness, the last sentence says: "it is possible that the decision may be reversed before the report is finalized.". So I hope our JFNA leadership has the wisdom to put Zionism back on their official global agenda, or they are going to hear from quite a few unhappy donors.

Zionism ought to be firmly on the Jewish Federation's agenda without any hesitation.  If we don't make Israel a key concern in our lives, who will?
